twitter, facebook. these are are things creating disruptive change in how the economy works and how governments work and it's all being created from this generation. so it's really having a deep impact on people of all generations. >> well, so let's talk politics for a minute. a particular project of mine to make conservatism more appealing to younger voters and that's no easy feat but i'm willing to put the work in. you know, what can conservatism do if you had to advise the movement? is it really just about weed, gay marriage, twitter? >> i think that's a piece of it. i think gay marriage and the social issues are a piece of it and seen college republican organizations on college campuses coming out marriage and things like that, breaking with i think what a lot of the party believes and i think more to the point. politicians are both parties have to actually fight for this generations vote every time because even though mill leanals are more democratically leaning, they are not big identifiers in political party membership. they don't see themselves as members of a political part
